Critic Reviews for Chapter 3: The Sin

[It] has done an admirable job of establishing its premise and most of its main characters in its first three episodes, but it remains to be seen if the rest of the season can move those elements in an interesting (and hopefully inventive) direction.

One aspect of The Mandalorian I haven't touched on much yet, but have really been enjoying, is Ludwig Göransson's score.

Great pacing, tense shootouts and an intriguing set up for the midseason arc makes "The Sin" a definite highlight in the big budget Star Wars series so far.

It leaves a good taste in your mouth as it knows perfectly how to distribute its time and give us the necessary dose to hook us all. [Full Review in Spanish]

Director Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones) did an excellent job of staging the action and making it easy to see Mando's effectiveness in combat.

'The Sin' just knocked The Mandalorian out of the parks on all counts.

Werner Herzog is a great Imperial war lord.

This was another fantastic episode. I love how it feels like a space Western and I love the similarities to John Wick, one of my very favorite action franchises right now.

In another heavy dose of deep fan service, Chapter 3 partially settles the long-standing debate about what Willrow Hood was carrying.

Not that it matters much because watching the Mandalorian tote that little package in the crook of his arm and pretend he doesn't love the kid is the emotional crux this show rides on, and dammit if it doesn't work.

The shots of the Mandalorians arriving are evocative of the animated shows-Clone Wars and Rebels-and feel like they were ripped right of the animation and writ in live action.

Chapter 3: The Sin was a very effective episode, delivering subtle nodes of character development while also establishing the clear arc of the narrative.
